Color Palette

The Quanex color palette is an array of colors chosen to add variety to communications and yet ensure that they maintain a consistent and recognizable appearance to reinforce our brand. The primary colors below are the approved colors for Quanex communications. When choosing colors, the primary colors should always be considered first, followed by the accent and light neutral colors.

As a general guideline, the primary colors should provide the dominant color scheme on all communication materials. All colors can be used as tints of the original color in multiples of 10% (e.g. 90% tint/screen of PMS 364). Use of any colors other than the approved Quanex colors is strongly discouraged.

Primary Color Palette

Primary colors should be used on primary elements. Examples include: backgrounds, headlines, main graphics or illustrations.

Accent Color Palette

Accent and neutral color use is encouraged, but should be used to complement the primary color palette through secondary elements, and should never overpower the primary colors. Examples include: subheads, callout content, icons or small graphics. Limit the number of accent and neutral colors used.
